Analysis of Economic Loss Caused by Ground Material Subsidence
Ground subsidence is one of the environmental geological problems today which arises in the process of world urbanization and can't be ignored. It is related closely to the local economic activities, and causes great hazard to the sustainable socio-economic development. Therefore, this problem has been paid much attention to by the whole society for a long time. The author of this paper analyzes the urban ground subsidence mechanism by adopting Terzaghi's effective stress principle and one-dimensional consolidation theory, and puts forward measures to prevent and control the ground subsidence.
